Today I am thankful that my workplace has a cafeteria, or else I would have gone without lunch yesterday.
On my trek to work, the driver in front of me came to a complete stop in the middle of the road, so I slammed on my breaks and everything that wasn’t strapped in via seatbelt flew to the floorboard. Today I am seat belting my lunch in with me.
I am thankful for cocoa powder, cinnamon, and a pinch of cayenne in my iced coffee. Next level stuff.
I am thankful for the resurgence of Ina’s energy, playfulness, and smiles.
Having a sick kid is absolutely no fun, and seeing her smile fully return along with her courage to climb things and say, “Mommy, WATCH!” as she jumps has been great.
I am thankful for my run/walk yesterday.
Ina and I ran to meet my friend Hannah to walk, and then ran home. Apparently Hannah ran home too! I told her to watch out, because running can be addicting, but I would love to have another running buddy.
I am thankful that Ina was patient enough yesterday to help me make “dinner,” which was pretty much me chopping up random vegetables (peppers, squash, onion) and throwing in some ground turkey and taco seasoning. Surprisingly, it was pretty good. Note - planning for leftovers doesn’t work when there aren’t any leftovers.
I am thankful for my mother-in-law, who drove over 2.5 hours round trip to pick up Ina because Dan and I couldn’t meet them. Ina was very happy to see her granny and happily climbed into her arms and said, “bye, bye Mommy.”
What are you thankful for?
